    Forward view

    Gentlemen ,

    How I can settle the forward view to cover from 270 thru 90 ?

    Have I do anything in FS9.cfg ? or in another place ? or that is impossible ?

    I do not want to use three (3) views , forward , forward left and forward right . I want to use just one view.

    Thanks and regards

    Alberto

    That might be possible, but its going to look REALLY strange during flight. More than 1 display is the way to go. 3 is your best bet. And you can usually get them for free these days. Old monitors are always being thrown out. They may be old, but they are free.

    Forward view

    Hi Andy ,

    My idea is as I use a projector I would have a forward view , from 270 thru 90 , 0 would be the center line of the plane , and would use a curved screen in order to have side view with this arrangement .

    How I can have that forward view with that angle ( 270 - 90 )

    Thanks and regards

    Do you have any idea what a fish eye lens looks like?

    Put a pair of them on and walk around the room. You would never be able to even fly the aircraft with a setup like that.

    If you want to test this theory,

    Load flight sim, and when sitting in the cockpit press the [-] Key as much as you can. this will only give you from about 320 - 45 degrees, and see if you can fly it like that.

    Let us know how you make out.

    Huh, I wondered why John Cryer wasn't a good pilot in Hot Shots.

    I thought the Walleye Vision TM would be helpful.



    Sorry for the 7500 ...back to the topic...
